1. Pressure cook zucchini,moong dhal and sambar powder with a little water for 10 minutes or till done.
2. Heat oil in a pan and fry urad dhal till brown.
3. Cool and grind to a paste with coconut and 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
4. Heat a pan and put in cooked zucchini –moong mixture and add the ground paste and salt
5. Mix well and adjust consistency by adding a little water if required.
6. Let it simmer for 5 minutes and remove into a serving dish
